Today is our eight year anniversary. Eight years, I can't believe it. It really just doesn't seem like it's been that long. I remember how excited I was that day. We were engaged for a year and a half so I was very ready for the big day. I was so blessed to have family and friends help us in every way possible. Everything went just the way I wanted it to.
It drizzled rain off and on all day but they say rain on your wedding day is good luck. I remember driving to get my hair done that morning then going to the church and meeting everyone else to get ready. My mom did my makeup and everyone helped me get dressed.
It's funny how as a young girl you imagine how this momentous occasion in your life is going to be. It's this fairytale kind of thing. You can't really image what and how your day will be. Then all of a sudden it your day and it is really happening. It was such a world wind of a day for me. It was like everything was happening in fast forward. The day was so full of excitement and anticipation. It is a magical moment, one of the few in life that really does come to life for a women. This day you dream of, marrying your prince charming, and having all those you love there to support you. Oh, what a babies we were at 20 years old and starting out our lives together.
I can honestly say that my day was perfect. Everything was just as I wanted it and had planned. My mom did her best to give me everything that I wanted. It was my perfect day.
Well today in the here and now, I have feed 2 boys three times today, I have changed many, many diapers, I have made a special cake for my prince charming, cleaned house, did laundry, and finally taken a bath. This life is not a fairy tale but I wouldn't trade it for all the fairy tales in the world. I do love that this, our together life, was started in fairy tale sort of way. Maybe one day soon we will get to celebrate our not so fairy tale life with a quiet, just the two of us dinner!
Here are a few pictures from our special day. They may be a little blurry, I need to get a new scanner! :)
